John Deer 318 re-do.

Here are some pics of my JD 318 riding mower. I bought it in the fall of 2011. It has 1,177 hours on it. I had to replace the spindle bearings on the mower deck, and I thought since I have it taken apart, I might as well paint the whole thing. The guy I bought it from did some work on the deck, and then painted the deck with a brush, and he told me that the first owners wife, repainted the green, and I could see that she used a brush as well. So a little bit of work and I got the deck and the wheels painted, and I just got most of the green parts primed. So here are some pics.

As soon as I am done with the Deere, I think dad is going to get the bondo done, and then if he wants me to I will paint it.

You are right Betty. I would not know what to do, if I did not have that little Deere. And Crystal would not have any thing to drive :) :)

All of the painting is done, and the tractor has been put back together. All I have left to do, is put the mower deck back together.

Here are the before, and after pics.
